For extra soft strands, pair this shampoo with the matching Lavender & Peppermint Conditioner. Both are part of C.O. Bigelow's exclusive personal care collection.

C.O. BIGELOW

Birchbox Breakdown

A wise woman once said that a great shampoo is the foundation of great hair. Take her sage advice seriously, and stock up on this apothecary line’s zesty formula. Originally a hotel exclusive, C.O. Bigelow released it to the public after countless fans called to sing its praises. Infused with refreshing lavender and peppermint scents, it leaves hair shiny and clean every time you lather up.

How it Works

The gel turns into a rich foam that clears away excess oil and product buildup without stripping hair of its natural moisture. Plus, thanks to the lavender and peppermint, the zesty scent will instantly wake you up in the mornings.

How to Use

Work a small amount into wet hair, concentrating on the roots. Rinse and follow with conditioner.

Love it, except the price
Purchased

This is a very small bottle. My husband and daughter love it, but I can't afford to keep them in stock! It is a very nice shampoo with great fragrance.

I think it would smell better if it was just peppermint, but it's ok. You need A LOT to get a good lather on your whole head. I wouldn't purchase it again

Smells Great, Doesn't Feel It
Purchased

I wish I'd read the other reviews first because I was also surprised by how small the bottle is for the price. The fragrance is definitely lovely and refreshing, which is a major plus. I don't think it makes my hair feel any better than much cheaper brands, though.

Does exactly what I need it to do
Purchased

LOVE the smell and it works very well as a clarifying shampoo without drying out my hair. Only con is the small size but since I'll alternate with a sulfate-free shampoo, it will last me a long time.

I ordered this because I love lavender. When I received it I was surprised how small it was, so I referred back to the website and realized they are 8 oz bottles, which is about a third of the normal size of a shampoo/conditioner bottle. Next time I will pay more attention to the size. Anyway, I used it once and I wasn't very impressed. Both the shampoo and conditioner feel really cheap, like hotel products. Then I read the reviews and it actually is a hotel product! I have fine straight hair and I found the shampoo to be really harsh/stripping and the conditioner was way to light. The only thing this product has going for it is the smell. I gave it to my husband and he liked it, but he doesn't have barely any hair.

This shampoo smells great & leaves my hair feeling soft & smooth. However, I was incredibly disappointed at the size of the "full size" product. Pricey for such a small amount.

Perk me up mint!
Purchased

Uplifting blend of mint and relaxing aroma of lavender. The scent is definitely with you. It doesn't lather up thick like most shampoo, but the lather component I know is a harsh chemical anyway. This line has never let me down.
